Plesk reconfigurator.exe can not be executed remotely via script as reconfigurator.exe runs in interactive mode (it requires the pop up).

Error when running the script remotely:

    System.InvalidOperationException: Showing a modal dialog box or form when the application is not running in UserInteractive mode is not a valid operation. Specify the ServiceNotification or DefaultDesktopOnly style to display a notification from a service application.
    at System.Windows.Forms.Form.ShowDialog(IWin32Window owner)
    at System.Windows.Forms.Form.ShowDialog()
    at reconfigurator.Reconfigurator.Main(String[] args)


Non-interactive mode was implemented in Plesk MU#38. Please install all Plesk updates and use option /no-gui as on example below:

    reconfigurator.exe /check=MySQLDataFileSecurity /no-gui
